Global Friends is Ahead of the Curve
Everyday Global Friends collaborates to reduce risks for the most vulnerable.The COVID crisis is no exception. We responded to the need by launching the Global Friends Stop the Spread campaign to support those in Tanzania, Uganda and Canadian First Nations communities.
This week, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, recommended wearing face masks in public places to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. We have mobilized our partner groups to make personal face masks and distribute them, along with educational materials, to help stop the spread of the virus. Our goal with this PPE initiative to is:
- Protect the vulnerable and their communities
- Prevent the spread of COVID and
- Empower as many as possible to stay healthy
Our initial goal is to fund the manufacture and distribution of 10,000 masks. We are also in the process of applying for grants from other charitable foundations in the hopes that we can at least double this number.
Please Help Us Stop the Spread We are raising funds to purchase supplies, distribute education materials, and share proactive messages in Africa and Canada. 100% of your donation goes directly to support the program.
